Unable to access a test centre due to Covid-19?
For candidates who are unable to access a test centre due to Covid-19 restrictions, we can offer a remote proctored test service. This means you can take the test on a laptop or computer in your preferred location. For the full criteria and how to apply, please read our Support Site article.
The dates of the TSA Oxford cycle are designed to fit in with the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) cycle for applications to the University of Cambridge.
Please note: we reserve the right to make changes to these dates.
*If the registration deadline falls on a public or national holiday, please be aware there is no extension to the registration period. Therefore, you must ensure your centre registers you for the test in good time.
Reminder: the 15 October deadline is the last date for centres to register you for the test, so you will need to register with a centre well before then. Centres may set their own deadline in advance for accepting registrations, so please make sure you speak to them as early as possible.
**For international centres the scheduled start times will vary, depending upon where they are in the world.
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing does not charge candidates who have registered to take the test. Some centres may charge an administration fee to candidates sitting the TSA Oxford, which covers the cost of invigilation, despatch costs and room hire which are essential for running the test: contact your centre for details.
